I Want To See Him
Jesus was being condemned to death for things that He had not done. For the most part Jesus remained quiet and did not answer the accusations that were levied against Him. There are times when we must learn to be silent, it does not make a difference what people say, silence speaks volumes in many situations. Jesus was then led to Herod, for him to pronounce judgment on Jesus for the charges that were being brought against Him.
The Scripture reminds us that, when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see Him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by Him. I encourage you today to be desirous to see Jesus, but be desirous for the right reasons. Herod wanted to see some spectacle from Jesus, He did not want to see Him in His majesty and glory, but Herod was hoping that Jesus would entertain him with some magic tricks. When we are desirous to see Jesus we should want to see Him change our lives and bask in His glory.
Why do we want to see Him? Is it so He can pay a bill, heal a sickness in your life, open a door you cannot open, or is to be in His presence and see Him for who He is. I want to see Jesus not so He can do some magic in my life, but so I can bask in His glory and lay at His feet and thank Him for all of the great things He has done in my life.
Since my desire to see Jesus is only based on who He is to me I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord I want to see you so I can tell you thank you for all of the great and wonderful things that you have done in my life. I want to see you to bask in your presence and to feel your glory surrounding me. Thank you for allowing me to see you. In Jesus Name Amen.
